Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Rocky Flats (CO) radiation

Final review of the clean-up of the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant
has found spots of unexpected low-level radioactive contamination in
areas thought to have been cleared. 

U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard immediately responded to the announcement of the
test results Thursday night with a press release questioning "whether
the site has been sufficiently cleaned up." 

Allard said Rocky Flats will not be closed until it has met its clean-up

But the Energy Department's John Rampe dismissed the minor hot spots as
too small to be of concern in the 6,000-acre site 16 miles northwest of
downtown Denver.
